by the entire intelligence committee, which susan rice on the 16th, who was asked to go before the people and use that statement, did. i have read every one of the five interviews she did that day. she was within the context of that statement. and for this, she has been pillaried for two months. i don't understand it. it has to stop. if it continues, it's going to set up once again a partisan divide in these -- the house and the senate, which congressman rogers and i have tried to overcome and have overcome with some success with respect to the intelligence committees. >> congressman rogers, to my understanding, talking to government officials, is that what susan rice said on "meet the press" five days after the attack and other programs as well, was very similar to what then director petraeus said privately on september 14, that there appeared to be a terrorist element to it but that it appeared first to be spontaneous but it became a terrorist attack, and that that was his belief. so were they not speaking basically in the same way? >> well, first of all, why are we doing the investigat
back to the president's press conference taking a pretty tough decisive tone on susan rice. and then you look at what's happening -- and also his position on the tax increases. take all of that together, it looks like more of the same. do you think -- do you sense, from your reporting, are we just having people circle each other or are their feet in stone? >> i think there's still some areas where people can move and get to the right place. but, you know, the two things i just keep thinking about is i think the business community, i think, what steve says is exactly right. seems like from the outside what they want more than anything is certain certainty. just moment to moment and minute to minute, it's crisis to crisis. that's an atmosphere not conducive toward optimal economic activity. this notion of trying to get to long-term, as you said, to long-term stability but not having short-term austerity measures that would be too depressed on consumer activity seems like where we need to end up. i think there's going to be a lot of pressure on the business community on republ
. we cannot ever let this happen again. >> why would susan rice not get our vote? i don't trust her. >> defending susan rice. >> senator mccain and senator graham want to go after some big, they should go after me. >> there are no barriers, they to sitting down and working through this process. >> as the fiscal cliff limbs, is there a deal in the works? mitt romney explains why he lost . >> the president's campaign was focused on his base coalition, giving extraordinary gifts from the government, working aggressively to turn them out to vote. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> i just don't know where to begin this week. do we talk about republican charges of a cover-up with regard to the fatal attack in benghazi? do we talk about sexual liaisons and e-mails and national security? to talk about israel and gaza. the possibility of a deal to avoid going off the fiscal cliff? let's start with the sex.

anxiety. bill: who changed the talking points on benghazi before susan rice hit the talk show circuit and peter king wants answers. he's here live in minutes. >> the talking point were drafted to. they said after it went through the process, which they seemed unclear about, that was taken out. . because your daughter really wants that pink castle thing. and you really don't want to pay more than you have to. only citi price rewind automatically searches for the lowest price. and it finds one, you get refunded the difference. just use your citi card and register your purchase online. have a super sparkly day! ok.

was asked about susan rice being the person that went out on point, on that sunday following the attacks. why the ambassador from the united nations would be the person, not the director of national intelligence, not the cia director, not the national security director. the secretary safety or the vice-president, but the u.n. ambassador and when asked and challenged about her testimony, this is what the president said and then i'm going to get your reaction to it. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me, but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> mike: now, to quote shakespeare, me thinks the man doth protest too much. and to me a legitimate question and then go after senators graham and mccain. >> a little paternalistic and left out one of the senators, a senator kelly ayotte who happens to be a female and i find it instructive that he left her out of his cri
that information, susan rice either didn't have it or use it when she went on the talk shows sunday. >> mike: one of the questions is, who is the they? are we closer to knowing that? did this go to the white house? was this done within the internal operations of the cia, at the state department? did you -- can you give us insight as to who it was who authorized and put their hands to the document and said we've got to scratch this out? >> no, sir we can't that. is a subtragedy to a larger tragedy that government can scrub out salient relevant information and we are no closer to knowing who did it and why. i suspect we know why. we are no closer to knowing who. i would say we've had two hearings now, one closed and one open. we have only just begun. i understand the need to have closed door hearings for classified information. but this is the same administration that wants to try terrorists in open court, with full discovery in front the media in new york city. we are going to have open hearings as soon as we get back as soon as the new congress is convened. we are going to have open hearings that
for coming back. >> john: it is all a pleasure to decimate bill's space. here is what happened susan rice went on tv and said a bunch of cautious stuff based on talking points about how it looked like well-armed extremist took advantage of a protest. john mccain is calling rice stupid and accusing her of lying over and over again. would john mccain care about this if the comments hadn't happened during his show. if only she had been named condoleezza, she could have lied about anything and john mccain would have believed what she said. i count benghazi because to me it represents john mccain's last dying gasp for credibility in his own party. you have john mccain and lindsay graham who are exploiting benghazi benghazi, and they are doing it to take republicans like them again. >> that's a good point. we knew this was going to happen during the election. but now that it is over, and obama won, in a land slide -- >> john: and it's par for the more to democrats to buckle. >> good point. but why are they still pushing this? >> because they are still running for president o
of the deadly attack of a u.s. consulate in libya, including whether ambassador susan rice's so-called talking points were altared the weekend after she gave that announcem of the attack. >> she didn't know anything about the attack in benghazi and the most politically compliant person. i don't know what she knew, but i know that the story she told was misleading. >> the debate on the hill intensified by general david petraeus' testimony friday that they suspected terrorism from the very beginning. >> why do you tell the american public something that is different in meaning? it should be perhaps leave out the details or the sources and then -- >> well, again, though, the details here were al qaeda. >> before you get to the question of what susan rice should or shouldn't have said, i think that we need to know the answer of who changed the talking points and why. >> okay. so let's get to the bottom of this and say good morning to the political power panel. we have susan page, and msnbc analyst karen finney and also a columnist for "the hill" and also the campaign manager for rick sanitorium's
with the question of whether or not this president will go ahead with the nomination of susan rice, given all the revelations by david petraeus today before the senate and house. first want to bring you up-to-date on what is happening in the middle east and israel appears closer to a possible ground operation in gaza. the israelis have ordered up another 45,000 reservists. they are on standby now, and that is an additional 75,000 total reserves that are now massing on the border with gaza. the israelis are vowing to intensify there air strikes on the gaza strip, that after palestinian -- palestinian -- palestinian militants targeted tel aviv. , says no fired more than 450 rockets at israel over the past three days. at least 23 palestinians have been reported killed in the fighting along with three israelis. the violence straining israeli relations with egypt. the senate's prime minister, not its promise to the president, prime minister to gaza to show solidarity with the palestinians and to, some say, a broker truce. moments ago men yahoo called president obama to discuss options for the esca
to be circling the wagons around the u.n. ambassador susan rice and the president. >> it's one of the most unfair attacks i've ever seen in washington in 34 years. susan rice was using the unclassified talking points which were provided by the intelligence community. they were a consensus report. >> i don't know what the democrats and the white house are trying to hide. and general petraeus and general clap said the intelligence community in it's entirety signed off on the talking points and went back to the administration and when they came back, key language was changed. >> ambassador rice used the changed points on the talk shows five days after the attack, harris. >> harris: i'm listening closely and hearing that they went to the administration. well, doug, that could technically mean the white house, the national security council, the state department, or many other entities. is there any one component of the administration coming under special scrutiny at this point? >> well, as of today, yes, there is. as you heard representative mike rogers chairman of the house intelligence committee for
rice are the u.n. ambassador. very interesting that today, president obama says, you know, susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi, i don't know what she was doing on the show. >> didn't she make her safe key player or a person put up by the administration to launch the defense. she could have said, we believe there are a number of possible theory sneers she didn't take that option. >> she was a good soldier did what the administration told her to do. she read the talking points. she had more -- >> did she act in good faith, do you think? >> i can't get inside her brain. i don't -- i think that she was repeating the intelligence and what the white house told her to say. what she was saying is similar to what everyone in the white house and the state department was saying at the time. so, i don't think that she was doing anything other than what she had been instructed to same the big question not whether this was one of the prominent theories, it was all a spontaneous protest from the anti-muslim video, it was, obviously, one of the prominent theories but on september 14th, the whi

.n. ambassador susan rice's declassified talking points on the attack in benghazi. specifically why the role of terrorism wasn't reflected in them. democratic senator dianne feinstein, the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee, says she'll investigate why the terrorist role wasn't included. still in an appearance on nbc's meet the press, feinstein said she was sure the white house didn't change the language in those talking points. >> with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there's only one thing that was changed. and i checked into this. i believe it to be absolute fact. and that was the word counsel was changed to mission. that's the only change that anyone in the white house made. and i have checked this out. >> republicans are accusing the obama administration of a cover-up and want ambassador rice to testify before congress. >> it's going to be one tough confirmation hearing. all right coming up, president obama on his way to cambodia right now. after an historic stop in myanmar earlier today. so, did the president accomplish what
